Harlem Shake video at Pyramids lands four in jail (VIDEO)


Four Egyptians were jailed after they made a "Harlem Shake" video at Pyramids in their underwear.



Egyptian police arrested four people who made a video of themselves and their friends dancing the Harlem Shake in front of the Pyramids.

The video, which has already been viewed by nearly 60,000 people, briefly shows one of them riding a camel in his underwear, said the Daily News.

The Harlem Shake is the latest dance craze to go viral on Youtube, with people around the world creating wacky videos dancing to the song.

The trap and bass song was composed by American DJ Baauer last May and has gained immense popularity after Australian students posted a video of themselves dancing to the tune.

Their video has been viewed over 16 million times.

In Egypt, police said that the students violated country's strict indecency laws.

“The four pharmaceutical students shocked residents of a middle class Cairo neighborhood when they removed most of their clothes and videotaped themselves performing the pelvis-thrusting dance," said an Egyptian police officer, reported AFP.
